WHAT: Giles & Brother Clara beaded braided bracelet
WHY: Much as we love the brass, silver, and gold staples from Philip Crangi's Giles & Brother line, we love it all the more with a little color. Enter the Clara, a jumble of chain, braid, and hooks with a row of neon yellow glass rings woven in. With the weather getting colder, and our wardrobes getting blacker, this bauble seems like the perfect way to add a little life back to our looks.

WHAT: Atelier Minyon 18K Yellow Gold Diamond Dome Ring
WHY: If you've never stopped by Atelier Minyon's Spring Street boutique, consider this your wake up call. The Turkish brand specializes in the most luxurious stones in over the top settings--no subtle solitaires here!

WHAT: Sandy Hyun white jade bib necklace
WHY: When we heard that W Hotels were putting together a collection of accessories inspired by its various locations, we weren't sure what to expect (we love a hotel gift shop, mais...). But when we heard that they recruited designers like Sandy Hun, Rachel Leigh, and Alisha Levine, we perked up. This white croc-embossed leather bib necklace with white jade stones is from the South Beach inspired collection--but chicsters'll wear it wherever they are.

WHAT: Paige Novick Bianca necklace
WHY: We're not really ones for creepy critters, but Paige Novick's snail mascot somehow fits: the understated elegance of the mollusk mirrors her sleek, organic jewelry. This Bianca necklace is the favorite du jour. It's glamorous and luxurious but so simple--no oversized gems and tangles of chains here. Sport it on the days you want to take it down just a notch, because you know tomorrow you'll be back to bigger-is-better...
